I am a 56 yr old white female with a total cholestrol of 79.  Was recently diagnosed with aortic sclerosis.  Take 120 mgs of Cymbalta daily.  Would this have anything to do with DX?  Was previously diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and reguritation 10 yrs ago.  After not having seen a cardiologist in 7 yrs - saw one who gave current DX.  He says to wait 6 mos & do a repeat echo?  Should I seek a 2nd opinion?

Hi, I just had my bloodwork done for a physical. Total Cholesterol was 152, LDL 90, HDL 33, Triglycerides 144. CRP 9.4. My doctor said the CRP was a bit high and sent me for a Cardiac Calcium CT. It came back with a score of 300. I'm a 43-year-old male. 6'2"" 210 lbs. Just wondering what all this means. Want to get a second opinion on treatment. I do have heart disease in my family (My father did have a heart attack at 52). Also take Cozaar for borderline High blood pressure.  Thanks.
